Tyreek Hill Fantasy Football News 2019

The Athletic's Nate Taylor hears that Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill's meeting with the NFL on Wednesday was "successful." Hill reportedly provided the league with "a massive amount of evidence to support his testimony." The Chiefs still expect a suspension for Hill, with 1 source predicting "a maximum of 4 games," according to Taylor. We're sticking with our projection of 12 games for Hill for now and will continue to keep a close eye on the situation. Hill's ADP is sitting in the mid-5th round in drafts over the past week.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill will meet with the NFL about his child-abuse allegations on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Hill won't face legal charges, but that won't necessarily stop the league from handing him a suspension. Hopefully we'll get clarity on Hill's 2019 status soon. He's gone in the mid-5th round in fantasy drafts over the past 2 weeks.

Kevin Kietzman of 810 WHB in Kansas City reports that neither Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill nor his fiancee broke their son's arm. Investigators "quickly agreed with medical staff that the broken bone was the result of typical accident involving a rambunctious toddler, consistent with reaching out to brace for a fall," according to Kietzman, who cited "multiple sources close to the investigation. This doesn't necessarily mean Hill is clear of potential discipline under the NFL personal-conduct policy. But this version of events would sure seem to save Hill's 2019 outlook. He's certainly worth a shot at what figures to remain depressed ADPs in current fantasy football drafts. And we'll all be watching this situation closely through the summer.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that, "barring further developments," Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is expected to re-join the team by the start of training camp. This comes after the Johnson County District Attorney told the Kansas City Star that the child-abuse investigation into Hill is not an active investigation. Pelissero notes that the league could still place Hill on the Commissioner's Exempt List, which would prohibit him from team activities. And, of course, Hill is still subject to a suspension from the league. So his 2019 status remains murky, but it at least sounds like he's still part of Kansas City's plans. That's good news for his dynasty value.

Speaking Wednesday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league won't interfere with the legal proceedings for Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill's child abuse investigation. "We will obviously be cooperative with whatever the court wants," Goodell continued. "We are prepared to go ahead and have an interview whenever we have the permission to do so and then we’ll go ahead and make a determination based on what information we have at that time.” Hill has not been suspended by the league or put on the Commissioner's Exempt List, but the Chiefs have told him to stay away from team activities. We'll continue to keep a close eye on the situation. Fantasy owners should be drafting right now as if Hill will be suspended 6+ games.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill's attorney sent a letter to the NFL denying the child abuse claims against his client. "He [Hill] categorically denies he has ever 'punched' his son in the chest or anywhere on his body, or otherwise touched him in the chest in a mean-spirited manner or as a form of discipline," the letter reads. So far, Hill has only been barred from team activities for the "foreseeable future." But the Chiefs are still looking into the situation, and the Johnson County District Attorney has re-opened the case against Hill. This remains a fluid situation, but we'd still bet on Hill facing a lengthy suspension.

The Chiefs selected Georgia WR Mecole Hardman with the 56th pick of the 2019 NFL Draft. The high school QB moved to WR for the Bulldogs, totaling 60 catches for 961 yards (16.0 YPC) and 11 TDs over the past 2 seasons. He added 13 carries for 97 yards and 2 scores, averaged 15.2 yards per punt return and 25.0 yards per kick return. Hardman goes just 5’10 and 183 pounds but blazed a 4.33-second 40-yard dash. He'll undoubtedly draw Tyreek Hill comparisons now that he’s in Kansas City. This pick feels like a reach to us, but it’s definitely a strong landing spot for Hardman’s fantasy value. He’ll be a riser in the post-draft dynasty rankings.

Chiefs GM Brian Veach said Thursday night that WR Tyreek Hill won't be allowed to participate in team activities for the "foreseeable future." That came after damning audio emerged in relation to the child abuse case Hill was under investigation for. It's unclear if that legal investigation will be re-opened, but Hill is almost certainly looking at discipline from the league -- potentially a lengthy suspension. The Chiefs, of course, released RB Kareem Hunt in November after video surfaced of him pushing and kicking a woman. Hill could face a similar fate.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill won't be charged in connection to an incident that left his 3-year-old son with a broken arm, the Johnson County District Attorney announced on Wednesday. The DA added that he believes a crime was committed but can't prove who did it. So Hill is off the legal hook. But the NFL is still investigating the situation, so a suspension remains a possibility. We'll continue to keep a close eye on the situation. Hill has been going in the middle of Round 2 in recent fantasy drafts.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is under investigation for battery, the Kansas City Star reports. The incident reportedly involves Hill's 3-year-old son, who ended up with a broken arm. Hill dropped to the 5th round of the 2016 draft largely because of domestic assault and battery charges back in 2014 that got him dismissed from Oklahoma State. We'll see where this investigation goes and how the NFL reacts.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel, wrist) is active for tonight’s game against the Chargers. He played through the injuries last week — effectively — and got in a couple of limited practices this week. He comes with more risk than usual tonight but still boasts big upside.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel, wrist) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Chargers. He played through this injury last week and got in limited practices on Tuesday and Wednesday. Hill is fully expected to play tomorrow night, but we'll find out for sure around 7 pm ET.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said that WR Tyreek Hill (foot) will practice on Tuesday. He'll likely be listed as "limited," but Hill remains on track to play against the Chargers on Thursday night. He produced after suffering that foot injury last week and remains a high-upside fantasy play in Week 15.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill's foot injury is "nothing serious" and that's he's considered "day-to-day." Hill was obviously hobbled in yesterday's win over the Ravens. But he played through the injury -- and effectively. The short turnaround for Thursday night's game against the Chargers complicates the situation, but we'd bet on Hill being out there. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Monday night's Chiefs-Rams game has been moved to Los Angeles. The game was originally scheduled for Azteca Stadium in Mexico City, but there were concerns about the field conditions there. Consider the move back to U.S. soil good news for both offenses -- especially the Rams playing at home.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (groin) is not listed on the final injury report. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Wednesday and Friday. Hill remains a must-start.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (groin) was limited on Thursday after putting in a full practice on Wednesday. He either suffered a setback over the past 2 days or the Chiefs are just taking it easy on their big-play threat. We should have a better idea of Hill's status by tomorrow afternoon.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill put in a full practice on Wednesday. The groin injury he suffered in last week's win over the Broncos shouldn't be an issue in Cleveland on Sunday. Hill remains a must-start in fantasy lineups.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill suffered a strained groin near the end of Sunday's win over the Broncos, HC Andy Reid said. Hill was rocking this sumo wrestler Halloween costume afterward, so we're guessing the injury isn't serious. We'll look for updates, though, and track Hill's practice participation this week.

The forecast for today's Jaguars-Chiefs game calls for periods of heavy rain. The good news is that winds are expected to be only 6-7 mph. They aren't ideal conditions, but it's not enough for us to adjust our projections for these passing games. You might use the weather as a tiebreaker if deciding between 2 similarly ranked players, though.
